The man who shot an Owings Mills woman early this morning is also the suspect in the murders of two New York Police Department officers at about 3 p.m..

The suspect is Ismaaiyl Abdula Brinsley, 28. His address is unknown at this time.

At 5:48 a.m., Baltimore County Police were dispatched to the 10000-block of Mill Run Circle, 21117. The police investigation revealed that the female victim, who is 29, was shot in her apartment by a man believed by police to have been Brinsley. The victim was shot in the abdomen and is expected to survive. Her name has not yet been released.

The suspect fled the scene before police arrived. BCoPD detectives became aware at about 1:30 p.m. of Instagram posts by the suspect that included threats against police officers. BCoPD immediately began trying to determine the location from which the posts were sent and found that the posts indicated the suspect was in Brooklyn, NY. BCoPD also tracked the phone the suspect was using.

At about 2:10 p.m., BCoPD made a phone call to the 70th precinct in New York, advising NYPD that the phone of a suspect wanted for a shooting in Owings Mills was pinging at a location in the 70th precinct. NYPD and BCoPD discussed the threatening Instagram posts during that phone call. Also around 2:10 p.m., BCoPD faxed a "wanted" poster to NYPD with information about the suspect, Brinsley.

Around 2:50 p.m., BCoPD sent a teletype with the same information contained in the flyer to NYPD's real-time crime center -- essentially, a data warehouse.

The investigation of the Owings Mills shooting by BCoPD's Violent Crimes Unit is ongoing. BCoPD continues to assist NYPD with its investigation. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.

On December 5 at 10 a.m., 10 Baltimore County police officers will be promoted. The ceremony will take place in the Vista Room at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, 2200 York Road, Lutherville-Timonium, 21093.

Police Chief Jim Johnson and County Executive Kevin Kamenetz will join family and friends of the promotional candidates at the ceremony and will present the certificates of promotion. The oath of office will be administered by the Honorable Julie Ensor, Clerk of the Circuit Court. The invocation and benediction will be offered by the Reverend Harry Schill, Police Chaplain.

The promoted officers and their new assignments are:

  • Sergeant David Barton, promoted to the rank of Lieutenant and assigned to Operations Bureau
  • Corporal Gregory Cougnet, promoted to the rank of Sergeant and assigned to Precinct 1/Wilkens
  • Corporal Nicholas Stein, promoted to the rank of Sergeant and assigned to Precinct 4/Pikesville
  • Corporal Steven Sunderland, promoted to the rank of Sergeant and assigned to Precinct 4/Pikesville
  • Officer Craig Coscia, promoted to the rank of Corporal and assigned to the Operations Bureau
  • Officer Eric Knox, promoted to the rank of Corporal and assigned to Precinct 8/Parkville
